About Ken Bryan

Now retired, I have enjoyed researching and delivering Power Point stories with a history bias to my U3A history group. This led to talks to Probus, Rotary, Lions, Brit Legion and Wi. Donations in lieu of a fee I donate to Alzheimers Resarch UK. My talks have been well received which now encourages me to join Speakernet and , so to speak, spread my net too.
